Everyone loves hardback books.
They are just that little bit more special; a luxury item that we collect and display on our bookshelves or reserve for special occasions or our favourite books.
Why is this? Because hardback books symbolise quality.
Hardback books have higher production costs but the results are worth it. High-quality papers, ribbons, a hard cover, covered in cloth or heavy paper, and decorated with illustrations and metallic embossing, all to create a durable and impressive quality product at the end of it.
We print many hardback books, whether rounded or square spines, complete with facings or jackets in printed paper or quarter-cloth binding. However, each job normally involves a much lower number than you would print in paperback, and that’s what we’d always recommend.
Advantages of hardbacks:
- High quality
- Higher selling price
- Overall luxurious look and feel
- Engages the senses
- Perfect for collecting/keepsakes
